My second project post. Should be posted on Matthews LJ as well since he did just as much as I. Anyhoodle, 3 sheets 5/8 Ply, 1 Sheet Masonite, 1 value pack hinges, 95% pocket hole construction. Cheap, functional.
Not pleased with the corbels, a little on the large side but meh, they will do, adds a little extra length to the top.

A great project for the shop and once again, just so cheap.

Regards,

Michael

Pluses:
- great price
- nice.use of corbels as a design element
- love the use of masonite for the panels
- Hinges look great!

Minuses:
- since you said the corbels looked big, now I think so too
- ‘anyhoodle’???

:-)

Great project, Michael! Congrats, the cabinet looks great!

Looks like they can store a lot. Is that going to end up being the miter station?

Great shop project. I would love these but I have ZERO floor space left. That goes for wall space too. Good job.

very nice, but under $70? 5/8 ply is over $20/sheet here in NJ!

JohnEinNJ – Its $20 a sheet here as well. 3 sheets $60, the hinges were $10, the Masonite free from a local cabinet shop dumpster, got 8 free sheets. Masonite is around $10 a sheet so these would cost you approx $80 to build. I didn’t include the glue and screws as I had these on hand.

What kind of TS is that? Looks just like my Ridgid 3650, but different colors.

Thanks Bill
Thanks Dusty56
Thanks kdc68 :)

Luke – This is the same saw as your Ridgid. This one is from Busy Bee Tools here in Canada. This is under the Craftex name. Identical saw, different paint. Made in the same factory in Tiwan :)

Inspiration is always welcome. Thanks! Great work and great design. Every detail counts, even the corbels, which are a great way to expand a work surface.

Best,

Serge
